ONU Theatre presents Antigone written by Sophocles and student-directed by Sarah Breinig. Ghandi once said 'Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the state has become lawless or corrupt. And a citizen who barters with such a state shares in its corruption and lawlessness.' In Antigone, a tragedy written by Sophocles around 441 BCE, the heroine has a similar attitude toward the state of law in Thebes and commits her own act of civil disobedience. She chooses to disobey the law and bury her brother because she believes he has every right to it.
